You have legal rights. We can help.


If you are being threatened and harassed by a debt collector, you don’t have to tolerate it. Even if you owe the debt, you have rights that direct how a collection agency can treat you.. If they cross the line, you can complain to the Federal Trade Commission and even sue the agency.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Some debt collectors assume that owing money makes you a target of harassment until you pay. According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, it is illegal for a collection agency to use these common tactics when communicating with consumers.

  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors
  • Calling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers and telling them that you owe a debt
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the amount of the original debt
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Contacting you at work after you tell them that your boss won’t let you take such calls
  • Making legally insupportable threats

When he arrived home from a trip, he found both letters simultaneously. The wording of the letters, which stated, in part, “Refusal to honor this debt within 5 days of receipt of this demand can mean appropriate legal action will be taken to protect our client’s interest” let him to believe that he was to be sued in a matter of days.
